Ancient Egyptian Mummies
Mummies, but not unique to ancient Egypt, were an important part of their culture. Death and the afterlife was an important aspect of their culture.

 The ancient Egyptians had a god devoted to death, Anubis, the god of death, the surgeon and healers. It has been linked to the process of mummification. Previously, he was invoked while the Pharaoh is buried.

The high priest donned the mask of Anubis while leading the mummification. This was done because of their belief that Anubis will direct them correctly during the process.
